Poetry Series: Lauren Zuniga
Thursday, Apr. 11, 2013 12:00pm - 1:05pm
Lauren Zuniga is a nationally touring poet, teaching artist and emerging activist who believe in dreaming global and shouting local. In 2010, she challenged the Oklahoma legislature with an evocative video poem that MoveOn.org called “the most riveting message on the war on women in under three minutes.” The poem has also been featured on Daily Kos, RH Reality Check and On the Issues Magazine. She was nominated for State Poet Laureate, gave a TED talk and has since shared stages with top business leaders, state officials and rock stars. She is one of the top 5 ranked female poets in the world, the founder of Oklahoma Young Writers and currently the 2012 Activist-in-Residence for the Center for Social Justice at the University of Oklahoma.
Come join us in celebrating National Poetry month with this first spoken word poet in our two part poetry series. She will be performing on April 11, 2013 in the Jackson Center Wilderness Auditorium from 12:00-1:30pm. In honor of National Poetry month we will also be holding an open mic session at 12pm before she starts, so come share your poems or short stories!
